Creating Space to Engage our Neighbors - Joshua Symonette

7/22/2018
More
In a world where we are over scheduled and pressed at the margins, it seems daunting to think about adding another thing. But loving our neighbors and intentionally engaging with those in our path is not “another thing”. It is an intentional way of life that Jesus models for us in the scriptures. This week we'll take a glimpse of what this kind of intentionality looks in the journey of our friends living in a predominantly Central American neighborhood in Alexandria called Chirilagua.

Throwing Better Parties - Dr. Mark Batterson

7/8/2018
More
When people think of “church” they don't often think of “party” but that's a recurring theme in the gospels, a recurring theme in the parables of Jesus. From day one, our dream for NCC has been that when people miss church they actually miss church. Why? Because that's where the party is at. Throwing better parties is part and parcel of following Jesus.

The first four letters of every testimony is “test”. Once you pass the test, you get a testimony. And once you get it, you need to use it. Why? Because it's not “your” testimony. God is writing His story through your life! Your testimony is your gift to the world.

Love your neighbor - Joel Schmidgall

6/10/2018
More
Jesus summation of the Old Testament law was to love God and love your neighbor. It's sounds like a simple task. But Jesus unpacks the complexity of the truth of what it means to authentically love those around you. And he also redefines our definition of a neighbor. And he challenges us to neighbor in a way that crosses lines, inconveniences our schedules, and forces us to step into the awkward spaces. He does all of this in one parable known as "The Good Samaritan." Join us as we walk...

Interpreting Jesus - Joshua Symonette

4/29/2018
More
When Jesus asked his disciples, “who do you say that I am,” he was gauging to see whether they had the right interpretation.

Counterfeit gods - Joel Schmidgall

4/15/2018
More
Assumptions, associations, and misconceptions all tear down our faith in God. The problem is that they are rooted in untruth and so we walk away from a god that doesn’t actually exist. The goal of today’s message is not to push you to a next level faith, it’s not to convince anyone to believe in God, the goal is to weed through the misconceptions and identify the counterfeit gods in our thought process. Those ideas that we learned as a kid but never gained a great understanding or, those...
